As a trusted advisor, Brent is dedicated to helping clients reach a higher purpose for their wealth and design a lasting legacy for their family.
Brent grew up in a small town in middle Georgia where he developed a strong work ethic through the time he invested in the family farm and helping his father and mother in the family insurance business. After attaining a business degree from the University of Georgia, he came back to his hometown of Cordele and took over the family’s insurance business. In 1995, Brent began his investment career in Albany, GA with the goal of helping clients grow and protect their assets through comprehensive planning and asset management. Brent founded Whiddon Wealth Management in 2009. In 2015 Brent, Carolyn, and 7 of their 9 children bought a farm in TN, relocated their family, and opened his second office in Columbia, TN.
With the strong desire to assist clients with aligning their investments with their values and to offer the best possible service to clients in both offices, Brent has joined OneAscent Wealth based in Birmingham. This step has been an answer to prayer, giving Brent the ability to work together with a wonderful group of like-minded people to serve clients in a way that has met and surpassed his original aspirations.
